Excellent location, very friendly, helpful staff.
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved every minute of it. It is within walking distance of a small village with very good restaurants and small shops. From there we hired a taxi to take us on a tour of downtown Sintra and the castles on the hill.
Hotel Nova Sintra is impeccably clean and very comfortable. It is also extremely reasonably priced. There is a wonderful patio where you can sit, have a drink, and see the castle at the top of the hill.
I cannot say enough about the fantastic staff here. There are 30 steps that lead up to the hotel from the street and we were greeted by a staff member who carried our luggage up when we arrived and down when we left. All the staff were very knowledgeable about the area and were more than happy to point us in the right direction for an electronics store to buy a new GPS.
Sintra is a beautiful place and our stay at Hotel Nova Sintra made us feel right at home.
